The upclient client for linux is rather clumsy with cpu
info, in the way that it checks the fields by their first
token only. That is why the current upclient does not
show the cpu id correctly at all, it shows sth like
GenuineIntel Mhz.

I created a patch and posted it on

http://www.ijdens.com/~pbijdens/patches/upclient-
5.0b8-cpuinfo.patch

This turns the "GenuineIntel MHz" strings into
GenuineIntel Pentium II (Klamath) 233 MHz, or
AuthenticAMD AMD-K6(tm) 3D processor 501 MHz
instead.

apply the patch by going to the upclient directory and
typing sth like patch -p1 < upclient-5.0b8-cpuinfo.patch

    Unfortunately your patch doesn't solve the problem on alpha. CPU
    identification is still "unknown".
